School Visits

I love meeting kids and getting them excited about writing!

My interactive writing workshop teaches kids about narrative plot structure and gives them an easy way to create their own stories. The workshop fits into the fourth-grade writing standards for narrative writing. It takes about one hour, and works best with groups of 25 to 50 students.

When I visit a school, I can also present to a large assembly about a career in writing and how a picture book is made.

A half-day visit ($300) can consist of either: A) a large assembly and one workshop; or B) two classroom workshops.

A full-day visit ($500) allows for either A) a large assembly and three workshops;  or B) four workshops.

I will travel up to 200 miles from the Atlanta area. Travel costs will be added for trips of more than 30 miles.

I wanted to thank you for visiting our fourth grade class. We all enjoyed your lesson and I was very impressed with its effectiveness. All of my students were so engaged and eager to develop their own stories. It provided a way to teach writing with fun. It seems a lot of the lessons we teach in writing become exhausting to our students, but this was very interactive and all of my students wanted to participate. When you left, we came away with a strategy to develop our own stories. Thank you again for visiting us and I hope you can join us again!
